Another day, another morning spent trying (and probably failing) to perfect the balance between work appropriate dressing and outfits that you actually like. Designated hem lengths, sleeve lengths, necklines — the fact is, dress codes just aren't very fun. But since we're more or less stuck with them, to make the morning what-to-wear grind a little less stressful, we've come up with a few tactical tips and tricks for office dressing like a pro.
Trousers, blazers, blouses, skirts — they're easy. Like 1 + 2 = 3 easy. Dresses, however, are so simple that they can be, well, boring. But it's that simplicity that has made long-sleeve dresses our go-to: They're weather- and work-appropriate and require zero styling. Simply pick a print, throw on a pair of boots (or trainers if your office is more casual), and call it a day. Plus, from jumper dresses to wrap dresses, there's an endless supply of long-sleeve styles just waiting to eliminate all of your dressing for work woes.
Before another hectic morning passes, take a look at the 16 options ahead. We're betting you'll want to wear them long past the 9-to-5 grind.
